Posted September 14,
I have been married for 12 years and have
a beautiful 9-year-old daughter. I didnt even know I
was pregnant until my mom looked at me one day and said
"you're pregnant" I couldnt believe it so
I went and bought an EPT test and it just confirmed
it!!! We were very surprised because we weren't trying
to conceive but we did.
Now, after almost 3 years of trying to
conceive it has become a long and sometimes frustrating
journey. We have done 3 failed IUI
cycles and this last one was the hardest to deal with
because we were so sure that "this was it"
my husband has had low sperm count in the past and this
last time he almost tripled in numbers. He took it very
hard when I told him that the pregnancy test was negative,
I was also devastated but I have not lost hope.
My doctor has now suggested that we do
one more cycle of IUI but with injections. I really
want to give it one last try but I am so scared of the
outcome if we are not successful. I don't know if I
wil be able to deal with the emotional pain and void
that this has brought to my marriage, but on the other
hand I am almost positive that it will be a sucess.
I am torn, I am waiting to get my period so I can start
treatment even though its so expensive, I have no idea
how to pay for it, but I feel in my heart that I need
to give it one last try. I will keep you posted :))
